UL-Lafayette will partner with Second Harvest Food Bank and United Way of Acadiana to set up a food distribution site at Cajun Field.

Our media partners at KATC-TV 3 report that the drive-thru pickup site will be created to help people experiencing financial hardships during the coronavirus pandemic. If you or someone you know is struggling to buy food, we hope this helps.

The food distributions will be from 2-4 p.m. Friday (April 17, 2020)., Food will be loaded into vehicles while volunteers adhere to social distancing practices.

Those planning to drive through the distribution site should enter from Cajundome Boulevard at Gate 5.

Food assistance will be offered while supplies last and those attending do not have to pre-register to attend.

I want to remind you that if you are able to help restock the shelves, please consider donating nonperishable food items to United Way of Acadiana or to Second Harvest. They are helping so many local families during these trying times.
